Komen Atlanta’s Worship in Pink program invites Atlanta’s faith-based organizations to come together to spread the lifesaving message of breast cancer early detection. WIP is a program designed to open the lines of communication about breast health, promote breast cancer education and celebrate the lives of those who have fought against breast cancer.
Komen Atlanta is a recipient of the Breast Cancer License Tag Grant. The purpose of this grant is to expands breast cancer education, screening, access, and outreach as well as treatment services. Thanks to Georgia CORE, we will be able to expand the Worship in Pink education program in Henry County. This will enable us to conduct breast cancer 101 workshops, educate more faith-based organizations in Henry County, and screen 200 women in the area.
Participating in Worship in Pink is simple. Komen Atlanta provides each organization with a planning toolkit, as well as FREE calendars filled with updated breast health information. Each congregation is encouraged to use the Worship in Pink program to celebrate breast cancer survivors and co-survivors in their community within October. For example, your organization could host a special luncheon for survivors, encourage the congregation to wear pink or invite survivors to speak about their experiences with the disease.
**Unfortunately, we are out of calendars for the 2016-2017 calendar year. Please stay tuned as we gear up for Worship in Pink 2017!
